Express Sport understands Real Madrid are to make a cut-price £70million offer for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
The France international has made it clear that he wants a move to the Spanish capital before the start of next season.
Pogba, 27, only has another year left to run on his contract and has told United that he won’t be signing an extension no matter the terms on offer.
Real came close to signing Pogba last summer but he ended up staying at Old Trafford for another campaign to run down his deal.

Ed Woodward sent Jadon Sancho message
Manchester United legend Paul Ince has told Ed Woodward that Jadon Sancho is “worth breaking the bank for”.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified the England international as his top transfer target but Borussia Dortmund are set to demand in excess of £100million.
Woodward, however, has warned that the club are unlikely to spend mega money on new signings because of the coronavirus crisis.
“One player that Man Utd, and Ed Woodward, would probably change their thinking on is Jadon Sancho,” Ince told Paddy Power.
“He’s worth breaking the bank for.”
